Logic Apps

Logic Apps allow developers to design workflows that articulate intent via a trigger and series of steps, each invoking an App Service API app whilst securely taking care of authentication and best practices like durable execution.
If you have any feedback or ideas on Azure Logic Apps we’d love to hear it.

How can we improve Microsoft Azure Logic Apps?

  1. Intellisense / help on WDL expressions

    As described in my blog post http://blog.integrationsoftware.se/azure-app-services-series-finding-1-problems-using-workflow-definition-language-in-logic-apps/ one of the problems we see using WDL expressions in the current interface is the basically non-existing help of how to use WDL. We get some help when choosing what input to send into an action, we see a drop down with all available action result items. But let's say we want to use a condition - there is no dropdown for using an action's status, e.g. @actions('youraction').status to use in a condition such as @equals(actions('youraction').status,'FAILED').

    There is no help about errors returned by actions/triggers which can be used as an input for…

    • Embeddable visual designer

      It would be great if we could embed the visual workflow designer from the portal into our own web apps to allow admin users to edit the workflow steps. Then we could post the updated JSON back to Azure Logic Apps via the REST API.

      • Disable/Enable an 'Action' in the LogicApp workflow.

        During building & testing a LogicApps, I need to skip certain actions to verify behavior of later actions independently in the flow. Currently, I need to remove the action to perform such task (which is not very productive).
        Providing enable/disable feature for action(s) will help in this scenario.

        Also, in case, where action needs some input from previous action then feature like "disabling with default output" (mock) will be a great help during development phase.

          • Allows multiple rules within a Condition block

            As of now, we are conditions block is very basic, it just allows user to specify one condition. There can be following additions to make it powerful
            1. Ability to add more rules
            2. Ability to define custom rule calculation logic (using AND OR)
            3. Furthermore, a formula script language can be provided wherein flow designer can specify custom formula for condition evaluation

            • Edit action JSON from visual designer

              I would love to have a slide out window to edit the JSON for a specific action/trigger without having to switch to code view and hunt for the action definition and then switch back to designer and navigate back to the action again.

              • Allow processing of SQL rows into one object/file/email

                Currently a dataset from SQL can only result in an action per row ie creates a file per row, add option to iterate/loop through the dataset to create a single file/email/report

                • Disable a Logic App for being updated in the Portal when linked to Source COntrol

                  Are there any plans to provide a possibility to disable to edit a Logic App through the Portal? A bit like Azure Functions, when you link it to source control, you only can edit via Visual Studio.
                  Offcourse only if VS tooling allows all possible functionality of the Portal Editor.

                  • transform multiple inputs

                    At this moment Transform XML accepts only 1 input message. Can you add the support to accept multiple input messages (like: multi-part messages in BizTalk mapping)?

                    • include c# support to configure different connectors

                      There is vast community of .Net developers who would be using Logic apps in future. The devlopers are used to Visual Studio features like intellisense, it would be great if connectors can be configured using C# language and atleast have intellisense activated, so that it becomes easier to code wherever necesaary in Logic apps.

                      • Better exception handling within LogicApps

                        Logic apps should have a nice exception handling feature so that enterprise applications and integrations can move towards it. With the lack of rich exception handling as we have in BizTalk, often its a drawback when moving critical applications/workflows to cloud

                        • Add a real langage for Logic Apps.

                          Coders like myself are very frustrated with the point and click paradigm - we prefer language and grammar. The current "code" view isn't really a legitimate offering in this respect. A good Logic Apps DSL is called for. I'll reference Power Query and "M" as an example where the code view was done right. You can have the language marshall back and forth to the current JSON representation, and that JSON would be behind the scenes or perhaps exposed with an "advanced mode" editor.

                            Parallel flows can be implemented in code view, but it would be nice if adding a parallel flow could be done in designer (for example an option in Add-button More choices?)

                                  • Disable/Enable individual actions/scopes

                                    Ability to disable/enable toggle any individual actions/scopes. This would be helpful to keep the configuration setup in the action, however the action is skipped if disabled. The runAfter sequence is updated and a new boolean property is created for the action for enabled (true/false).

                                    • Pick/WaitAny Action

                                      It would be great to be able to appy the notion of a Pick Activity (from WF 4.5) or WaitAny (.Net Task speak) within the workflow (designer or code view).

                                      Currently you can go parallel (code view only), but the can must wait for both. It would seem that the RunAfter would need some notion of OR (WaitAny)/AND (WaitAll):

                                      "Terminate": {
                                      "inputs": {
                                      "runError": {},
                                      "runStatus": "Failed"
                                      },
                                      "runAfter": {
                                      "Delay": [
                                      "Succeeded"
                                      ],
                                      "HTTP_Webhook": [
                                      "Succeeded"
                                      ]
                                      },
                                      "type": "Terminate"
                                      }

                                      • intellisense

                                        Now that we have LogicApp Designer within VS, can we have full intellisense support for all Workflow keywords?

                                        Thanks
                                        Guru

                                        • zoom in and out in logic app designer

                                          It would be helpful for the larger logic app flows to have zoomin and zoomout functionality.
